How times have changed when I lived in Brasted some 20 years ago this pub was always a popular pub and when I drove through yesterday and noticed it closed up I was saddened as the Kings Arms had also gone.
Reading the comments it appears the clientele has changed also, use to have a great landlord and lady.

This place has now shut and is boarded up if it is the pub in the High St. Funny thing is, that I've only just noticed this state and yet pass through Brasted quite often but perhaps not as often as I thought based on other's findings.

Always a vile place with customers and staff of very low calibre

Every time I pass - I say 'demolish'

Now, where do these lazy people go? The bus to Sevenoaks?

Now what was the name of the nice, friendly other little pub in Brasted...you must remember...SN bought it and then closed it in the belief that less competition would force people to go to the Bull...one might suggest this is all a load of bulls....SN have lost the plot when it comes to running pubs...of course they don't want another brewery e.g. Westerham running it because that would be ...more competition...hum..strange world when the customer base of an industry is constantly eroded by the actions of that industry.

Unfortunately, as I understand, Shepherd Neame are refusing to include the garden or car park in the sale of this Pub. Westerham Brewery were interested, but not in a pub on a main road with no car park. Could it be that SN just want the council to agree to change of use to residential, so that they can sell it for housing?

Still boarded up and for sale. This pub was always badly run and catered for the chavs (old and young) of the area, Now looks rather sad/worn - and a brave person would have to invest a lot for the place to reopen. Fine pubs nearby, like the Whitre Hart.

Sadly this pub has now closed and was boarded up when I passed today. It is for sale as a freehouse and I hope it finds a new owner soon and doesn't remain one of the sad casualties of this recession like so many other pubs around the country.

Popped into his place early one evening . It is a Shepherd Neame pub and I am not the biggest fan of their ales , they were in good nick and the locals were very friendly . Nice atmosphere and everyone was happy to talk to each other .

The decor is a bit ropey , the layout of the pub is not great and it is just a bit tired . I did enjoy myself but it may put off some people . I will be going back in the near future .

Overall a nice place , needs a lick of paint .

Beer was excellent.
Locals friendly.
Very limited menu unless you want all day breakfast or jacket spuds.
Don't start Sunday roast till 1pm, so don't turn up at 12.30 as I did! (and went somewhere for better food)

This pub is under new management since it was last reviewed and from what I've seen I like it. The landlady and the staff are friendly and efficient and there is a lovely community atmosphere. The locals seem like a happy and friendly bunch. The bitter goes down well and theres a great pint of Oranjeboom to be had.The food is home cooked and well presented and there is plenty to choose from with a great roast offering on sundays. I shall be using it regularly even rhough it isn't local to me because it is worth the trip.

Metaphorically the piano does stop playing when you walk in here and every barstool and table and beer clip screams at you "You're not from round here are you?"

Having said the draught Bishops Finger was decent. But yes as previously suggested not a pub with any aspiration to be overly welcoming or anything much.
They sell scampi fries which can only be a good thing.

It did used to have a sign up saying "Pull in to the Bull Inn" but they've taken it down as presumably they're not so insistent on your pulling in, which was reflected in the atmosphere of the pub.
In no way was the atmosphere aggressive, just not overly hospitable.

The western edge of Brasted, perhaps. Locals stare at casual visitors - the same faces all the time. Service and beer are just about adequate for what is just a very basic pub with little ambition.

I do like the Bull Inn. A very good Shepherd's Neame pub set along the A25 on the eastern edge of Brasted. A good range of beer available, although I seem to recall that Bishop's Finger isn't on draught any longer, which is a shame.
